Dear Folks,

I had been eyeing on a set of headlights (BMW E46ci) with built in projector lense and LED 6000k. I got 2 sources as stated above. My question is to ZTH guys is, which country of made that you have higher confidence level in ?

Thanks,
Ken

with these aftermarket headlights, it's best to check the reviews because it doesn't matter which country it's made if the beams don't come out right. If you're replacing the headlights for appearance factor then that's something else, but to seriously improve the beams, you might want to take a look at local projector headlights retrofitters. They take apart the headlghts, remove the exisitng projector and replaces it with supposedly better / bigger / brighter HID or LED projectors. I've done it on my previous Clio RS, from reflector stock to HID projectors. search for CSB Pro from USJ if you're keen

Did they manage to get the HID projectors at JPJ compliance angle? Wish to try it out in my Iriz (*poison)

retrofitting any HIDs or after market lights is illegal bro. Unless the car has a model that came from the factory. Like the old Waja had normal halogen and Xenon headlights, if you take the xenon one and install into your halogen model car it's legal

Thanks guys for the heads up. How about in general confidence level towards the car parts from Thailand vs China ?

PS: Not buying, going to buy one set projector headlights from an Original BMW E46ci 330.

Yup, is illegal but if can mod in projector lens and not blinding, keeping the color temp correct should get away with it.......lol
